'Star Wars' Episode VIII Titled 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi'

Disney has announced the official title for Rian Johnson's follow-up to 'The Force Awakens'. Episode VIII of the franchise will be titled 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi'.

"We have the greatest fans in this or any other galaxy. In appreciation of the fans, we wanted them to be the first to know the title of the next chapter in the Skywalker saga: Star Wars: The Last Jedi," Lucasfilm says in a statement.

Of course, the title is likely a reference to Luke Skywalker, who Rey comes face to face with at the end of 'The Force Awakens'. The film's opening scroll also described Luke as the last Jedi and Yoda referred to him as the same in Episode VI 'Return of the Jedi'.

Rian Johnson, the director of the film, said he had the title in mind since the "very first draft."

Written and directed by Johnson and produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman and executive produced by JJ Abrams, Jason McGatlin, and Tom Karnowski, the film has a release date of December 15, 2017.
